# Supplier Engagement - Gaining Feedback and Insights from Suppliers
[Supplier Engagement](https://www.fotpresearch.com/supplier-engagement-survey/) -
We conduct supplier feedback research driven around the specific needs of our clients in terms of scope, process and deliverables.
As a key Stakeholder Group, your Suppliers are crucial in enabling you to develop the products/services to meet your customers’ requirements better. Suppliers can range anywhere from Transactional to Strategic, from Exclusive to Shared, and more and more frequently, are being considered pivotal to enable a company to deliver its business plans. Given the growing importance of suppliers, it is becoming increasingly relevant to understand their views and gather their feedback as part of an SRM process. In an increasingly competitive environment, having strong, positive, collaborative relationships with your key suppliers is becoming a strategic imperative and key competitive advantage. Suppliers often have choices: who they work with, who they invest with, and who they choose to develop strategic relationships with. The most successful companies often have the most successful supplier relationships with strong supplier engagement. But how do you know how successful your supplier relationships are without some form of measurement?
Conscious of the maxim that ‘you shouldn’t mark your own homework, engaging FOTP Research, a specialist B2B research company, as an independent third party to work with you is the best way forward.
